Patient Comments (2)
in Portland, TN |
Dr. Ball was very careful to make sure that I fully understood the procedure, what to expect and hospital procedure. He first meeting with me was in recovery following another procedure. He realized I was not alert enough to fully understand and had me come in for a clinic consult. His care before, during and after surgery has been excellent. I would not hesitate to have another procedure with him if needed and I would highly recommend him.
in Huntingdon, TN |
Dr. Ball was very compassionate, appeared very well informed and very pleasant to work with. He never left the room after surgery until he was certain he had answered all of my questions. He was equally informative prior to surgery.
